4 out of 5 stars
HANDS OF DARKNESS is an edgy read with a heroine that is anything but run of the mill.
Evelyn has survived the devastation of losing her young daughter to a psychopathic murderer. Solving the case brought her some sense of closure, but also got her disbarred. She now works as a consultant for the San Diego Police Department. Evelyn’s ways are far from conventional and she often speaks without a filter. But she has the uncanny ability of getting information out of witnesses and criminals alike. When her current case turns personal, Evelyn becomes even more obsessed with finding the man who is brutalizing and murdering woman.
HANDS OF DARKNESS was a refreshing read, in a blunt, un-censored sort of way. I like a book with grit, and HANDS OF DARKNESS had plenty of that. An aspiring author myself, I’m pleased to see Christian publishing houses broadening their borders to include stories that haven’t been sanitized, but still include characters who believe in the power of God.
